Is she a he? Rooster or not

With that small of a picture, I cannot see the bird's tail. Judging by comb size and crest development,yes, it is a rooster. But I cannot be sure unless I can see the bird's tail.

Here are some links to sexing tips:

I'm wondering the same thing! Here is a pic of my 6 week Rhode Island Red, "Red". What do you think?

You both can post photos at  "what breed or gender is this."  stating the age(in picture) can make a lot of difference.    

 

Silkies are extremely difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs.  I would like to see a photo of  he/she   face forward with  the crest held back so  you full comb is obvious.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
